Star Trek: Voyager celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, first premiering on the small screen back in 1995. As the world of The Next Generation is now being revisited with the CBS All Access series Picard, some fans of Voyager might be wondering if the TNG follow-up show might get some sort of reunion series or special as well.
There's apparently enough interest in the possibility that word has made its way back to Jeri Ryan, who played the fan favorite character Seven of Nine on Voyager and reprises the role for Picard.
Speaking on a potential reunion, Jeri Ryan admits she'd love for Seven of Nine to see some of her Voyager pals again, but the actress doesn't hold much interest in seeing a full-blown series revival. From ComicBook.com, here's what Jeri Ryan said when directly asked about the possibility.
"Would I love to reunite with some of those characters? Sure, I think that'd be great. I don't necessarily need to do a Voyager show again. I think that I've done that. But I'm not a writer. I can't really tell you anything."
Ryan's hesitance to return to Voyager may also have something to do with how things were behind the scenes during her run on the show. Noticing a night-and-day difference to her experience shooting Picard, Ryan doesn't seem to share the same nostalgia for Voyager as many fans of the series. Elaborating, Ryan had this to say about her time working on Picard compared to her days on the Voyager set.
"I'm having a great time on Picard. It's a very happy set. It's a very relaxed set, which has been great. I didn't have a phenomenal overall experience shooting Voyager. I don't look back on that as a super fun four years for me, unfortunately, so to be revisiting this character in a more pleasant work experience is great."
Though she would become one of the show's most popular characters, Ryan is not an original part of the Voyager cast, as Seven of Nine wasn't introduced in the series until the fourth season. Some of the other parts of Voyager's memorable ensemble cast include Kate Mulgrew as Captain Kathryn Janeway, Robert Beltran as Chakotay, Tim Russ as Tuvok, Robert Picardo as The Doctor, Roxann Dawson as B'Elanna Torres, Robert Duncan McNeil as Tom Paris, Ethan Phillips as Neelix, and Garrett Wang as Harry Kim. The series also had many memorable guest stars, including actors from the original series and The Next Generation.
With Seven of Nine on Picard, the door is open for the character to reunite with some of her fellow shipmates from Star Trek: Voyager. With the series already renewed for a second season and with so many franchise favorites announced to return, there's no telling who might be showing up on the show. Still, a Voyager reunion may not happen on Picard, but even if it's just for a brief reunion special for the Short Treks web-series, it would be awesome to see the old Voyager crew back together one more time. For now, you can catch new episodes of Picard on CBS All Access. This news comes to us from ComicBook.com.
